Has anyone seen little silicone digital watches? They are quite small and like a little slip on bracelet with no clips or buckles. I saw them once a few months back but can't remember where. They were only little cheap ones.

I saw some Angry Bird ones at Big W, about $15, but not sure if hey were digital or analogue.

The ones I'm thinking of have a pretty small oval shape face around a small rectangle with the time bit. They are just plain silicone. Wouldn't be any room for anything else.

They are digital and are in the toy department at big w - there is a section with lots of toys that are all $1 each. Pretty sure they are $1 or maybe $2 .. cheap either way. I have them in mind for party bags for DD's next birthday.

Great thanks. I will check them out, see if I can find plain ones. original.gif

Thinking they would be good for DD#2 & DD#3 as they are so cheap it wouldn't matter if they loose them. Then DD#1 wants a watch she can wear that wont scratch (so no buckles or sharp bits) the little kids when she helps out at her after school activity.

Great thanks.  biggrin.gif  They will be great if I can't find the ones I'm after. I just checked on their website and they have ones pretty close to what I want only they have extra bits that go around the wrist instead of just the one band.

eta: what I want is like THIS only one band around.

Woolworths have watches in stock that are the slap bands, so no buckles etc. they are only $5 but I don't think they are digital.

Have a look in the Kitchenware department as well, Brita filters were doing an offer earlier in the year where you got one of those watches with their sports water bottles.

I'm pretty sure I've seen them in the toy or childrens accessories department of my local Kmart as well.

Do the slap band ones stay on ok? Even say if they were to get knocked by an arm or leg while she is trying to help little gymnasts?

Doesn't have to be digital. Just that I thought the ones I saw a while back would be good.

They are definitely at Big W for $1, I bought a couple for my children last week. All different colours, plain single band with the rectangle digital clock face.

Yep Big W in the extra cheap section of the toy department, $1 each (or maybe $2)

Ooh, will be getting some cheap ones for my girls.

I got DD1 a Smiggle one for her birthday and it broke the first day she wore it  huh.gif

... or if digital isn't a requirement, my DS13 is champing at the bit for one of these for Christmas ...

O' Clock watch

The clock face pops out so bands and faces are interchangeable  rolleyes.gif .

#22 mumto3princesses

Posted 17 December 2012 - 09:40 PM

Ah didn't think of broken ones. If they are that cheap I guess you can expect that. Hmm, I guess I could get spares at that price.

Yeah, digital isn't a requirement but DD#1 doesn't want a big watch as she thinks it would get in the way. And cheap is a huge requirement for DD#2 and DD#3 as they loose everything!

Our kids had the silicon bracelet type ones and they were terrible! The actual watch part was too sensitive and would reset to 12:00 all of the time.

I have taken the timepiece out and the silicon bands are now a part of the babys chewy toys  tongue.gif

Yeah, we got those too for the kids last year, as we were travelling and wanted something cheap for them

Biggest waste of money ever! (even though they are really cheap)

Don't waste your money OP.

Hmmm. What about the slap band style like pp suggested? Would it stay on ok even if knocked?  

Maybe something like THIS for DD#1? Doesn't look like it has any bits on it that might scratch anyone looking at the picture.

I did see some pretty little watches with butterflies on them, normal bands at Kmart for $9. Maybe they might be better for DD#2 and DD#3.
